Woodill Wildfire
The Woodill Fiberglass Body Corp.
Tustin, CA
1952-1958

The Woodill Fiberglass Body Corp. built an early American Sports Car called the Woodill Wildfire or simply the Wildfire.

Woody Woodill's father was an early American Automobile dealer, handling Maxwell, Overland, Willys-Knight and Dodge. His father also owned a line of cut rate gas stations in California. Woody started working in his father's gas station at the age of 12.

In the early 1950s the wildfire was also called the 14 hour sports car. For $495.00 customers and Sports Car enthusiasts would receive a fiberglass body and frame kit. At first a 1939 Ford was used as a donor car for the drive train and chassis. In one weekend customers would strip the 1939 Ford body. The next weekend the you would put your Wildfire together.

In 1970, Hemmings Motor News introduced a companion magazine called Special Interest Autos to meet the growing needs of car collecting enthusiasts. In the 1974 March-April issue is an excellent article about the Woodill Wildfire. Each page will open in a new window and will be large enough to read. Very good article on this 1950s fiberglass automobile.

Below is a July 1955 episode of the TV show called "You Asked For It" with Art Baker on YouTube. In this episode a Series II Woodill Wildfire was built in four hours. A little dark but still worth watching if you are interested in Forgotten Fiberglass.
